 We will consider any level of sponsorship. Either working capital, or in-kind service.


  As of October 20, 2000, We have Beach Movie Theater as the Event Sponsor.
THANK YOU Beach Movie theater!


They provide funding and/or in kind service for: We also do have:
 The Host Sponsors -The Outrigger Beach Resort. and the Holiday Inn Gulfside. The Outrigger has been the cornerstone of the event since its inception in the mid eighties. Both hotels provide accommodations and food for the competing Master. Each year the host hotels alternate the hosting of the amateur division competition as well as being the site of the awards presentation on Sunday afternoon. This year the awards presentation and the amateur divisions are at the Outrigger.
The Presenter of the Festival - The Greater Fort Myers Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. They own the event name and provide administration assistance to the producers in the form of office space, Media relations, General PR, volunteers to accept registrations and facilitate the Amateur division competition. They are also the key contacts for advance tee shirt sales.
These two parties as well as the producer /director The Sultans Of Sand will be listed as well as any Event Sponsors  and all the minor support sponsors in all media and promotional materials with the sole exception of the event Tee Shirt.

If one sponsor is willing to be THE sole event sponsor, they will get all the benefit of exposure as THE event Sponsor. In calendar year 2000 this sponsor is Marco Movie Theaters
The more sponsors, the more split in cost to the sponsors, but also diluted exposure.

 (even if you are interested in  only a partial sponsorship, please contact us for details)

What a Sponsor can expect:

  No sales are permitted on site. Due to the restrictions in permitting for the City, County and Department of Natural Resources, we  (the event itself) will not be selling food or beverages. The Host Hotels will have their usual F&B sales going on as part of their regular daily business, but that is the extent of expected sales besides the event tee shirt and possibly any other even- related merchandise such as souvenirs. This is a family oriented event, and though the demographics are broad, we want to impart a familial feel to the show.
 If you would like to discuss being involved in this event or in the manufacture or sales of event- related merchandising, contact us as soon as possible via the contact means listed on this page.

 In addition to Event Sponsors, other sponsorship options may be available, such as individual sponsorships of the individual Masters competing. If this is done, it must go through the producers first, as space and other perks are limited.

 We are open to discussing ANY ideas you may have. Please feel free to contact the producer:
